Yes. Ring around the Rosie in particular is dark. It's about the plague and was sung with the current tune we know as early as the 1790s. Kinda freaky when you think about it and we never know any of the meanings as children.
A lot of our traditional nursery rhymes aren’t really nursery rhymes at all – they are nonsensical rhymes to amuse children. But many of them have hidden, sinister backstories which are far from child-friendly. Dating from as early on as the Viking period in England, some are records of political and religious upheaval; others explore aspects of daily life, scandals and gossip.
